CCM, I, too, worry about all those in the path of the storm back East and hope they will post as they can. There's a current thread on the Food board about precautions to take and preparations people can make ahead of time. Stay safe all....
Glad you started this thread, CCM, as the other thread isn't really giving up-dates as to the storm itself and if it has hit and where? They're probably all busy taking cover so let's hope when time allows, people will start posting HERE to keep us up-dated as to what is going on back there!
Some may be interested in watching what's going on. There is a webcam with sound at Coopers Beach in Southampton NY that will probably have some interesting sights, if it is still operating and has power when daylight comes. Just google for the link.
Lots of wind and rain!!! Really starting to whip up pretty good now. The hardest part is the 'waiting'. I just hope we don't lose power. Just got a phone call 'no school tomorrow'. (I work in a school) The hardest part is the 'unknown'. Used to snowstorms, and know how to prepare, not this.
4:38 here in Fairfield, CT.on Long Island Sound. Getting lots of wind and rain. Has picked up considerably within the past hr. Just heard our power sub station is in danger of flooding so they are shutting down our power to minimize further damage to the plant. So we will have no power for the next 24hrs. at least. They have asked people to evacuate in our beach area and of course some didn't heed the warnings so now they are having to emergency evacuate these folks. When will peolple learn? Stay safe everyone.
